Located on the south side of town, in the same Plaza as the San Francisco de Asis Church, this is a hidden gem. They close between lunch and dinner so call to confirm hours 575-758-5788. The building is an old hacienda with numerous rooms, each with 4-5 tables. Check out their washroom that has a bathtub in it! It wasn't... More

This was the best Sunday brunch I've ever had. So many kinds of food. All very fresh. Some rather fancy. Great coffee, lovely decor. We will be back!

The Hampton Inn Taos recommended Ranchos Plaza Grill, advising us that this hotel had the best Sopaipillas! Not knowing what Sopaipillas was, we decided to check it out! The greatest Mexican Meal ever! Along with the service and friendliness, you can't ask for a better night out! This is a must place to visit, it will be worth your effort... More

Over the course of a week we ate at many restaurants in Taos, and visited the Ranchos Plaza Grill on our last evening. It wasn't originally on our radar but was recomended by a couple locals - but with the caveat that the service could sometimes be slow. We made a reservation and arrived at 7 (they close at 8:30)...

We followed a recommendation to eat at Ranchos and were definitely not disappointed. Make sure to eat inside as the small rooms are wonderfully decorated. The meals are not just average mexican but have something authentic. The service, the food and the location made us an evening we won´t Forget.

Green chili was missing only a runny light green sauce with almost no pieces of green chili in the sauce. Covered up by excessive cheese. No where like last year when it was heavy nice chopped flavorful green chili. This was bland and runny and not anywhere as good as last years green chili enchilada. Asked the waiter and YES... More

The atmosphere when you walk in is fabulous...the food is even better...look around before eating. We shared the Schrimp quesadillas & sophadillas bread with honey (pardon the spelling)...it was to die for! Plenty of food, Plus with the salsa & quacamole---we were stuffed. The delicious, reasonably priced food was further enhanced by the court yard which was a pleasant surprise...... More

Excellent Northern New Mexico cuisine at very reasonable prices. Meals served with Sopapillias and honey that are to die for. Good service. Located in an authentic adobe building with lots of history and close to the historic St. Francis Church.
